Domestic Violence Politics in Post-Soviet States

Janet Elise Johnson

This article, drawing upon three approaches from comparative political science, compares domestic violence politics in Russia with Ukraine, Moldova, and Armenia. It suggests that foreign assistance, not without unintended consequences, holds the best promise for initiating reform. It also shows that there is nothing particular about Russian culture that limits reform, especially, as activists can manipulate gender neo-traditionalism. Finally, the study suggests that institutionalized political channels for considering women's issues can facilitate feminist policy-making when pushed by an autonomous women's movement. In conclusion, the article suggests that studying gender politics in non-Western contexts requires integrating comparative with international theories.
